Hello world!

There are many reports about sinology or China studies on the web, but I miss reports from students who share their personal experiences during their studies, with all their ups and downs.
This is why I created this blog.
I would like to share with you my passion for sinology, my perspective about life as a student in Leipzig, Germany where I did my B.A., and in Taiwan where I spend the third year of my studies. I moved to Freiburg for my MA in Modern China Studies.

My name is Olli or 丁歐力 „Dīng Ōullì“, and I write in the languages most of my friends speak which are English, German and Chinese. We are close in spirit although far away or to put this into the words of 王勃 Wáng Bó from the Tang Dynasty, 天涯若比鄰.

Feel free to contact me either via Mail, comments, or any other contact information you have. I am especially open for topic suggestions.
